WATCH: Clint Dempsey scores beautiful free kick against Club America, America quickly equalize

We had a very exciting end to the first half of the Seattle Sounders/Club America CONCACAF Champions League game.

First, Clint Dempsey scored his first Champions League goal in style as he curled in the free kick in incredibly beautiful fashion.

Then, just 90 seconds later, Darwin Quintero completely passed the Seattle defense as if they were standing still. Taking the long pass from about 40 yards away, setting up a one-on-one with Stefan Frei. Quintero scored and ended the first half 1-1.

While Club America have the away goal, Seattle have really held their own in the first half. This is anybody’s game heading into the second half.
